William Williams used to manage industrial services companies. He now attempts to grow artichokes, garlic and capsicums at the northern end of Wales, with occasional success, and hill-walks with occasional disasters. When it rains, which is most of the time in Clwyd, he attempts to decipher the works of Ludwig Wittgenstein.

Williams reviews Egyptian Myth – A Very Short Introduction by Geraldin Pinch. Pinch has a formidable task. In 125 pages, Pinch outlines the framework within which Egyptian myths are contextualised before outlining the mythology itself. Such a brief book could have been facile but instead Williams is impressed by Pinch’s achievement. He explains why.
